President Barack Obama will set aside his golf clubs Monday to climb aboard Air Force One and try playing president for a day in Washington, DC. By the end of that day, millions of Americans will wish he had stayed in his more familiar surroundings; vacationing.
There is wide speculation the now very unpopular president will make an announcement on immigration or a visit from some unnamed foreign leader, according to The Hill. Naturally the White House has denied any knowledge the president may announce new executive orders to deal with the immigration crisis.
But anyone the least bit familiar with the president’s precarious political position know desperate Democratic candidates are looking into the abyss of the midterm elections this November. Obama plans to help their base of ethnics, environmentalists, activists, the poor, etc. with some sort of get-out-the-vote, country-be-damned political gesture.
Something must be happening for the oft-vacationing president to turn down a golf day on his vacation. The GOP has been issuing strong warnings about the consequences should he choose to act unilaterally on immigration. It is common knowledge this particularly political president will do almost anything to score votes, no matter what the consequences may be to the American economy or the average citizen, particularly those that will not be voting Democratic.
Iowa Republican Rep. Steve King, a member of the House Judiciary Committee, told "America's Forum" host J.D. Hayworth Thursday on Newsmax TV what many Americans feel about the immigration politics; "I'm very concerned that he might do that. The information that I'm getting is that he was likely to, but now there's a sense that the timing of it might mean that he may be a little less or even on whether he does the stroke of his pen." He added, if Obama "uses his pen to conduct the business of the United States Congress while we're out of session, it will bring about a Constitutional crisis.
Alabama GOP Sen. Jeff Sessions was much grimmer in his assessment with his statement on Wednesday saying "recent developments suggest the president's planned executive amnesty could be increasingly imminent and broad in scope, according to the National Review Online.
The most frightening part of this scenario for Americans is the influence former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (see attached video of Pelosi with recently fired moderator David Gregory on "Meet the Press") welds over the president in this matter. She is clearly one of the White House's closest allies. The wild-eyed ultra-left Democrat is strongly urging the president to issue 'the broadest possible' executive actions," according to the Washington veteran, Sessions.
It makes sense that Pelosi would be behind such an action by the president. All polls indicate sweeping Republican victory in November will further reduce Pelosi’s influence and drive Americans further away from the ultra-left agenda. Her wishes are purely political and have nothing to do with the welfare of the American people.
Sen. Sessions summed it up best by adding, "It is chilling to consider now that these groups, frustrated in their aims by our Constitutional system of government, are plotting with the Obama administration to collect their spoils through executive fiat," he said. All Americans should be afraid of the “bunker mentality” that has permeated the Democratic Party. It is every man and woman for himself and God help the country when it comes to their political hides. Disgraceful.
